|Nurses on Boards|
The Institute of Medicine (IOM) recommended in its landmark 2010 report, The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health, that nurses should be represented on boards, executive leadership teams and in other key leadership positions.
Why nurses on boards?
Nurses on Boards Coalition
In order to advance more nurses on boards, the Nurses on Boards Coalition (NOBC) was established in 2015 by a broad group of national nursing organizations. They set the goal of 10,000 nurses on boards by 2020. The NOBC has now been joined by other organizations to accelerate the goal and provide nurses with the resources and tools to be effective board members.
